Downtown Los Angeles Climate Page

Please note: The data below comes from two different time periods, 1877-2007 and 1921-2006. The data from both periods will be updated periodically. We recommend using the 1921-2006 datasets when available and use the 1877-2007 data if you need data prior to 1921.
Any extremes that occurred prior to 1921 will not be reflected in the 1921-2006 datasets. Discrepancies may occur between this dataset and any record statements that are issued for downtown Los Angeles since the record statements are based on data back to 1877.
Also note that the data contained within these pages has not been verified for accuracy. If you need certified records, please contact one of the climate centers.
